The Go project reports:

When invoking functions from WASM modules, built using GOARCH=wasm GOOS=js, passing very large arguments can cause portions of the module to be overwritten with data from the arguments.

If using wasm_exec.js to execute WASM modules, users will need to replace their copy after rebuilding any modules.
